This gives me scary flashbacks! A couple years back I was over at Bill
Hedrick's house. Bill is my Bomber Brothers endurance rally partner and owns
the '71 Midget we have thrown all over roads, sandpits and Great Lakes
ferries across the Midwest. I had driven the Growler, my '79 Midget, and
parked it in his drive - behind his white F150. We were standing on his porch
chatting and didn't really pay attention when the truck started up. The thud
when it backed into my Midget however did get our attention. Examining the
car, this was one instance when I was EXTREMELY grateful for rubber bumpers -
no damage at all to the car despite the rather radical difference in bumper
heights. Just to the ego of Bill's extremely embarrassed 17 year-old daughter.
So maybe it wasn't her fault. This all seems to point to some supernatural
emnity between spridgets and white Fords! Maybe the truck did it. Perhaps
this explains the '69 Midget we were trailering with Bill's pickup that we
dropped off the front of the trailer despite us being very sure it was
properly secured. It was trying to attack the pickup. Ah ha...
